Create an itinerary including Maison Du Patrimoine - Atelier Perret
Maison Du Patrimoine - Atelier Perret, opened in March 2006, contains an apartment and is dedicated to Auguste Perret's architecture. Although his work is now internationally recognized, the history and layout of apartments he proposed in the reconstruction of Le Havre after World War II were long ignored. The museum recreates the interior and furnishings of one of his apartments from the 1950s, designed for people who had lost their homes during the World War II bombings.

  • Gives you a good impression of the way how people lived in the years after the war.
  • If you are not fluent in French do not waste your time. We were interested in at least getting to know the apartment built by the architect Perret. We arrived at the counter in the morning and the attendant told us that there was only time for the end of the day. We returned, bought our tickets with the same attendant and entered with a group accompanied by the guide who told us that the tour would be only in French. That's fine with us, since we wanted to see the apartment. But the guide told us that the tour would last about an hour. We found it odd to spend an hour visiting an apartment, but when she stopped in the courtyard to explain the whole story, we were embarrassed to understand and see nothing. Alright the tour was in French, after all, we were in France. The problem was the attendant knew that we did not speak the language and sell us the ticket anyway. We gave up the ride after ten minutes of history on the patio, we went to the attendent, who admitted his fault, but told us that he could do anything, not even refunded the ticket we had just bought.
